Backstage Look at New Holiday Creations at Walt Disney World for Disney’s Animal Kingdom

We previously announced that new holiday decorations and offerings would be coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Per Disney Parks Blog, “It all begins on Discovery Island, where you’ll be surrounded by a celebration of winter. The village is filled with sparkling white holiday decorations and colorful, animal-inspired luminaries, and throughout the day, the area springs to life with a Merry Menagerie of winter animals, accompanied by serenading musicians as they create a playful atmosphere of festive fun.”  The debut of the amazing new decorations is coming soon!


Disney Parks Live Entertainment has been working on creating the collection of reindeer, foxes, polar bears, penguins and more to pull off these new decorations. These animals are being created as life size puppets with new techniques to allow them to interact in new ways than ever before. Check out this awesome video below:

The new decorations and animals will debut at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on November 8th, 2019.

Who can’t wait to see these in action?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
